NHL: Hawks beat Oilers in OT, move record streak to 19

CHICAGO – Marian Hossa scored 1:44 into overtime, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Monday night to stretch their NHL-record opening points streak to 19 games.

Patrick Sharp set up the winner with a drive to the goal that led to two stops by Nikolai Khabibulin.

Hossa picked up the second rebound and was stuffed by Khabibulin before he poked it home for his ninth goal.

Patrick Kane and Viktor Stalberg also scored for Chicago (16-0-3), which has won six straight and nine of 10. Ray Emery made 17 saves to remain unbeaten in eight starts this season.

Nail Yakupov and Jeff Petry had the goals for Edmonton, which carried a 2-1 lead into the third period.

Chicago looked listless for much of the second, but rebounded quickly in the third. Michal Rozsival was behind the net when he sent a pass in front to Stalberg, who poked the puck into the mouth of goal as Khabibulin went to his knees to try for the stop.

The call on the ice was no goal, but replays showed the puck crossed the line before Khabibulin could make the play and Stalberg was awarded his fifth goal of the season after a short review.
